Johnny ZamotTell It Like It Is! ... LP
Decca/El Sonido, 1967. New Copy (reissue).... $9.99
A heck of a great little boogaloo album – and one of the few 60s sides by the legendary Johnny Zamot! Although cut for Decca, the album's every bit as tight and soulful as contemporaneous work for Tico, Fania, or Cotique – and the set features a similar blend of English lyrics, Latin rhythms, and a nicely gritty Spanish Harlem approach to the music! The horns cut wonderfully into most of the tunes – blasting out with a soul instrumental sort of vibe, while the lyrics tackle simple themes of love and lust on titles that include "Baby, Bring It To Me", "You Cheated On Me", "Harlem Boogaloo", "Hey Girl", "You Dig", and the sweet instrumental "Latino Baby", written by Pat Patrick, from Sun Ra's group!

Ray BarrettoCan You Feel It ... CD
Atlantic (Japan), 1978. New Copy .... $13.99
Sweet sounds from the days when Fania Records was one of the greatest things going on the New York scene – and some of its key artists got a chance to work for other labels! This set's one of the best examples of that moment – as Ray Barretto steps out here in some sweet soulful territory for Atlantic Records – on an album that mixes his Latin roots with warmer soul backings that have the same sort of full, rich sound of the best Atlantic R&B of the time. Ray's conga is still part of the sound – especially on the funkier cuts – but the album's also got some strong soul vocals, too – sung by Prince Phillip Mitchell on one of the album's best cuts, and by Cissy Houston and Googie Coppola on a few others. Tracks include "Sting Ray", "Can You Feel It", "What Part Of Heaven Do You Come From", "Stargazer", and "Confrontation". CD

Joe BataanSalsoul (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Salsoul/Big Break (UK), 1973. New Copy .... $14.99
A landmark album from Joe Bataan – so great, that it made the entire record company change its name! The record has Joe really bursting out after his seminal Latin Soul work of the late 60s – blending Latin rhythms and American soul into a whole new style of music – one that Joe called "Salsoul", because of it's mixture of salsa and soul! The blend is fantastic, a real milestone in the NuYorican scene – and handled perfectly by Joe on every cut! There's some massive Latin funk on here, including the tracks "Latin Strut" and "Aftershower Funk", plus some straighter Latin jazz, like "Sunny Gets Blue Mambo", and a great Latin Soul cut with English vocals called "Johnny". CD features bonus tracks – "Continental Square Dance", "Latin Strut (mono single)", "Peace Friendship Solidarity (mono single)", "Aftershower Funk (mono single)", and "Fin (mono single)". CD

Johnny BlasKing Conga ... CD
CuBop/Ubiquity, 1999. New Copy .... $5.99 16.98
A killer album of Latin jazz tracks! This is most likely the best album that Johnny Blas has cut for the Cubop label – and it's stone solid all the way through. Johnny's playing here with his new band – and most of the tracks have a nice stripped-down lineup that features piano, conga by Blas, and a very hard-hitting trombone section, playing with a classic jazzy groove. The set's got excellent production in keeping with the usual Cubop high standards – and titles include "Our Sound", "Sobale", "Scorro", "Rican Conga", "Sidewinder", and "King Conga". Also includes a great remake of Freddie Hubbard's classic "Little Sunflower"! CD
Also available King Conga ... LP 12.99

Conjunto ImpactoEl Regreso ... CD
Sols, 2013. New Copy .... $9.99
A great new set from this legendary Miami Latin combo – working here in a classic style that really shows their roots! The album's no-nonsense salsa right from the start – great rhythms at the core of each tune, some soaring work on trumpets and trombone to really give the cuts a jazzy sparkle, and lyrics sung with plenty of soul – including a few numbers by a younger female vocalist who joins the group! The whole thing's a salsa dura gem from the underground – issued by the band on their own label, and with the feel of some rare indie set from the 70s. Titles include "Me Marcho", "Hoy Por Hoy", "Bala Perdida", "Negra Dura", "Para Cali Querida", and "Sorpresas De Amor". CD

LibreRitmo Sonido Estilo ... LP
Montuno, 1983. Very Good+ .... $19.99
A great little 80s album by Manny Oquendo's Libre group – recorded after their classic Salsoul LPs, but every bit as great! The group are in incredible form – very tight, with loads of jazzy touches, and an approach to the groove that won't quit. Players include Andy Gonzalez, Jerry Gonzalez, Steve Turre, Dave Valentin, and Milton Cardona – and the tracks are all long enough to allow the players plenty of space to express themselves. Arrangements are by Marty Sheller, Andy Gonzalez, and Manny Oquendo – and tracks include "Que Humanidad", "Elena Elena", "Bailala Pronto", "Llora Timberto", and a great version of "Little Sunflower".
